How about 83?

Hey, Wim you look great, hale and hearty. Is that Raleigh bicycle out-side yours? You come all the way to this Virtual Cafe WIM while people who were here earlier say you are in your 80s..?

Getting to a virtual cafe is no longer a demanding effort. 

How do you get there without any effort?

Floating. I get an idea that is of super good use for you to know about and float it.  See if it flies. In real life floating is hard work. In cafe circles in the 80s and 90s, Cafe WIM Staff Members Dean Black and Stephen Roberts could flloat big trays to a table on one finger.

WOW !!!

Exactly. They were first among equals. Primi inter pares. Now, I try to equal that elegance by meeting with you all in the Virtual Cafe WIM. Floating trays of good content to your table with two typing fingers.

How old are you now?

I am back to when I started Cafe WIM on Sussex Drive: the early 80s and I tell you how you can get there even without killing yourself in the effort. Living on the planet  sure is a curious thing, so I like to hike the number of years on the ball to please my curiosity.

How do you stay healthy?

Don't get sick. Small amounts of colourful food. Eat an apple a day and bicycle. Simply type in "Why bicycle?" Impressive lists appear that make you run for a good bicycle in a minute. Cut: car cost, smoke-stuff money, television money; shopping for stuff you already have.

But dear fellow Wim, those are money-related issues, we like to know about good health.

Fewer money-issues, less stress, healthy life. MUCH higher chance of sticking to the planet. How do you get to your 80s and your 90s, trying to round-out your planet-curiosity in a sunny stress-free manner was in essence what we're now talking about. 

That is, simple as it sounds from you, Wim still a tall orer. How can anyone just let go of all the modern little goodies that give some pleasure in life.?

You pay the bills folks. My uncle saw a man on a big ocean-liner with two poemas. "Would you  like to walk with them?", he asked. "they are your poemas", my uncle said. "you walk with them." 

Nice story, Wim. Still no easy prospect. You actually suggest that we do "kill ourselves."

You all are my honourable Guests. Cafe owners want their Guests well and alive, relaxed and heavenly stress-free. Away from commonality. General Charles de Gaul once said, "I am not on left, not on the right, not in the middle. I am above." 

You like to see us above our earthy desires?

Save your money, relief stress. Add=up the goodies list: 8 to 10.000 per year. THAT will keep you above water. More enjoyment of that heavenly stress-free life. Hold the money-costing- urge down for7 minutes and it passes. True !

We will chat about all this with our better halves, at home. See you soon, Wim

Hello. I too would love a copy of the book. I spent many a happy afternoon and evening at Wim in my teens. It was a home away from home.
